Prawn Layer Salad

We've all seen those layered salads beloved of supermarket sandwich and salad shelves, looking a bit forlorn as everyone ignores them. Well, I actually quite like them on occasion! The supermarket ones usually have pasta in but as I was going out for dinner I decided to make mine carb free and just concentrate on the salad bit. It's basically prawn cocktail on top of a layered up salad and it was really good, just like supermarket version but cheaper to make than buy! I packed the cocktail sauce in a separate box to take with me to stop everything getting soggy.

Prawn Layer Salad
(Serves 1)

1 egg
1 little gem lettuce, shredded
195g can sweetcorn, drained
1 carrot, coarsely grated
½ small cucumber, diced
100g cooked prawns
2 tbsp light mayonnaise
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
splash Tabasco sauce

Boil the egg in a small pan of boiling water for 8 mins, drain and run under cold water until cool. Shell, then slice.

Layer the salad in a bowl starting with the lettuce, then the sweetcorn, carrot, cucumber, egg and finish with the prawns.

Mix the mayo and ketchup with a dash of Tabasco, then pour over the top. Serve with a lemon wedge, if you like.
